A food rave – Mr Miyagi in Melbourne was exceptional

A food rave – Mr Miyagi in Melbourne was exceptional

Melbourian’s love waiting for food…that’s a fact. You cannot book many Melbourne restaurants, so it’s all about planning your evening.

Desperate to go Mr Miyagi, he excels at Japanese food with a twist. We grabbed an uber at 6pm. Arriving at the Chapel Street address at 610pm we put our name on the waiting list. The restaurant was already rocking and bursting at the seams.

Two hours later we left the bar across the road after getting the much-anticipated call… ‘your table was ready.’

Having not eaten at Mr, Miyagi’s before we had no idea what was good and it all looked, so decided on the ‘FEED ME’ option.

And so the food started coming…not only was it unbelievably delicious, but the “FEED ME” was excellent value for money. If we had chosen the a la carte option it would have cost twice as much.

Salmon Nori Taco

This amazing taco is made from paper thin nori thats and is very crisp. It is generously filled with  chunks of grilled salmon, sushi rice, napa cabbage, japanese mayo and chilli oil. They are served in this little box that keeps it all intact… very innovative.

Salmon, kingfish and tuna sashimi

A fresh, delightful healthy course!

Shiitake dumplings

These little parcels were light and tasty. The shiitake was pickled with crispy ginger, coriander and chilli oil.

Schnitty Bao

These weren’t actually part of the “FEED ME” deal, but we couldn’t resist. The soft bao bun had raman coated chicken schnitzel with kim chi tartare…melt in your mouth.

Miyagi Fried Chicken

Hard to resist, not so healthy option. It’s a take on KFC with Kewpie mayo… the perfect match.

This was only a selection. In addition we also had blow-torched Edamame, Tempura Broccoli,  Korean BBQ Pork Ribs, Happy Hand Roll and I’ve probably forgotten something else.

But this wasn’t the end.

Pumpkin Toast

And then came the sweet ending…pumpkin toast, white chocolate and pumpkin ganache, honeycomb, yogurt sorbet and spiced pumpkin ice cream. With four spoons working at  once, it wasn’t long before it was all gone!
